so here’s a thread on how economists have defined rationality across 20th century.
Focus is on 2 debates: status of expected utility theory (EUT) in 50s & of Kahneman & Tversky’s results in 70s to 90s
See book by @gaddus2016, work by Lenfant (hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-01771855/d…) on ordinal vs cardinal U, Herfeld (catherineherfeld.weebly.com/publications.h…) & @ngiocoli
(e-elgar.com/shop/modeling-… on history of decision theory)
I nevertheless wonder when move from separate econ space to workhorse models in micro/macro happened (only now? which key paper signals integration?)
Scientometric analysis of behavioral economics is from "The Disciplinary Mobility of Core Behavioral Economists" by Alexandre Truc, which you can read here
